In an effort to provide you with a quality Nationals Tournament experience, it is requested and encouraged that all teams book their rooms at the host hotel.
The Lakeshore foundation has worked very diligently to provide a secured hotel block of rooms at the Birmingham Marriott with a group rate based on our entire delegation as well as a family and friends package. In doing so,
airport and gym transportation (for teams) will only be provided to and from
the Birmingham Marriott. This will also be the site of the AGM and banquet.
It is understood that some teams may be driving in, but please keep this in mind: Collectively, we meet once a year at the AGM and celebrate our season, sponsors, volunteers, players and our sport during the banquet.
Logistically, this will help the tournament to run smoothly and on time. As
many of us know, who have run our great tournaments, time is of the essence and at times it can be a struggle to stay on track. It is our goal to do just that. By utilizing the transportation shuttle, this will lessen the congestion of the Lakeshore parking lot allowing teams more time to prep and warm up and less time rushing to drop off and parking vehicles.
As member teams of the USQRA, we need to understand that the Lakeshore
Foundation and your Association have worked and continue to work tirelessly in providing you with a quality and memorable Nationals Tournament.
Your support of this request is truly appreciated.
Your USQRA Board
